The Thanks in Thanksgiving


(Photos by Emily Hoke)
During this time last year, I was completely lost. I was alone. I was angry and betrayed. I was ripped in two. I felt like I wanted to die. I was so full of raw sorrow that I couldn’t get out of bed, let alone be with friends, if only to eat good food. What was there to celebrate? Well, I still feel this way, but to a lesser extent. The only things I feel I can be thankful for nowadays are family and good friends that attempt to understand what Andreas and I are going through on a daily basis. Oh, and delectable food, of course. Can't forget the food! I guess this is a huge step. I wonder if the holidays are ever going to be joyous again though. Perhaps as our family continues to grow, so will my joy. I can only hope. And be thankful for the small things...

I guess that's all we can do is be thankful for the small things and hope. I am glad you have those family and friends that try to understand your pain and loss. They make such a difference.
